"The case is over when the judge issues a judgment of a Dissolution of Marriage or some sort of final judgment. A divorce must be pending for a minimum of 30 days after it is filed before a divorce can be granted.
The length of a Missouri divorce case can vary and is contingent on how quickly the parties can agree to terms and settle the case on their own or how quickly the attorneys can help negotiate or how quickly the court can schedule and ultimately rule on a case.
Depending on your situation, the amicability of the parties, the judge in your case, etc., a case could take up to one year and sometimes longer. Factors also include how your jurisdiction and local court handles docketing.
The judge will schedule pretrial settlement conferences to determine the status of the case. If there is a good reason to delay the case, the judge has the discretion to do so. Otherwise, the judge will likely set a trial date.
If there are any unresolved issues on the trial date, the parties will be allowed to present their evidence and make their arguments, and the judge will decide the remaining issues."
